Is. 46:9—Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, (10) DECLARING THE END FROM THE BEGINNING, and from ANCIENT times things that are NOT YET DONE, saying, My counsel SHALL STAND. Is. 45:21—Who has DECLARED this from ANCIENT time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the Lord? And there is no other God besides Me, a just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me. (22) Look to Me, and be saved, ALL YOU ENDS OF THE EARTH! For I am God, and there is NO other.

John 1:1—In THE BEGINNING was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) He was IN THE BEGINNING with GOD. (14) And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld HIS GLORY, the glory as of THE ONLY BEGOTTEN of THE FATHER, full of GRACE and TRUTH. Ps. 2:6—Yet I have set MY SON on My holy hill of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, YOU are MY SON, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) Ask of Me, and I will GIVE YOU, THE NATIONS for Your INHERITANCE and THE ENDS OF THE EARTH for Your possession. Heb.13:8—JESUS CHRIST is THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, and FOREVER. John 3:16—For God so loved the world that HE GAVE His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whoever believes in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life. (17) For God DID NOT SEND HIS SON into the world to condemn the world, but that the world THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED. (18) He who believes in HIM is not condemned; but he who DOES NOT BELIEVE is condemned already, because he has not believed in THE NAME of THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON of GOD. (19) And THIS is the CONDEMNATION that THE LIGHT has come into the world, and men LOVED DARKNESS rather than LIGHT, because their deeds were evil.

Amos 5:20—Is NOT the DAY OF THE LORD DARKNESS, and NOT LIGHT? Is it not VERY DARK, with NO brightness in IT? (21) I hate, I despise your feast days, And I do not savor YOUR SACRED ASSEMBLIES. (23) Take away from Me the noise of your songs, for I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments. (24) But let JUSTICE run down LIKE WATER, and RIGHTEOUSENSS like a MIGHTY STREAM. Is.42:1—Behold! My servant whom I uphold, MY ELECT ONE in whom My soul delights! I have put MY SPIRIT UPON HIM; He will bring forth JUSTICE for TRUTH. (4) He will NOT FAIL nor BE DISCOURAGED, TILL HE HAS ESTABLISHED JUSTICE IN THE EARTH; and the COASTLANDS SHALL WAIT FOR HIS LAW.

Is. 60:8—Who are these WHO FLY LIKE A CLOUD, and LIKE DOVES to their roosts? (9) Surely THE COASTLANDS shall WAIT for ME. And the ships of Tarshish (Hard contemplation) will come first, to bring YOUR SONS from AFAR, their silver and their gold with them, to the name of the Lord your God, and to THE HOLY ONE of ISRAEL, because HE HAS GLORIFIED YOU. (10) The sons of foreigners SHALL BUILD UP your WALLS, and their kings shall minister to you; for in MY WRATH I STRUCK YOU. But in MY FAVOR I have had MERCY on you. (11) Therefore your gates shall be OPEN CONTINUALLY; they SHALL NOT BE SHUT DAY or NIGHT, that men may bring to you THE WEALTH of THE GENTILES, and their kings in procession. (12) For the nation and the kingdom which will not serve you shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined. (13) The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the cypress, the pine, and the box tree together, to beautify the place of My sanctuary; AND I WIL MAKE THE PLACE of MY FEET GLORIOUS. (Is.66:1—Heaven is My throne, and EARTH is MY FOOTSTOOL.) (14) Also the sons of those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you, and all those who despised you shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; AND THEY SHALL CALL YOU THE CITY OF THE LORD, ZION of THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL. (15) Whereas you have been FORSAKEN and HATED, so that no one went through you, I will make you an eternal excellence, A JOY OF MANY GENERATIONS. (16) You shall drink dry the milk of the GENTILES, and shall milk the breast of kings; YOU SHALL KNOW that I, THE LORD, AM YOUR SAVIOR and YOUR REDEEMER, THE MIGHTY ONE OF JACOB. (21) Also your people shall be RIGHTEOUS; they shall INHERIT THE LAND FOREVER, THE BRANCH OF MY PLANTING, THE WORK OF MY HANDS, THAT I MAY BE GLORIFIED.

Is. 61:1-THE SPIRIT of the LORD GOD is UPON ME, because the Lord has ANOINTED Me to preach GOOD TIDINGS to THE POOR; He has SENT Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the OPENING of the PRISON to those who are bound; (2) To proclaim THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort ALL who MOURN, to CONSOLE THOSE WHO MOURN IN ZION, to give them BEAUTY for ASHES, the OIL of JOY for MOURNING, THE GARMENT of PRAISE for THE SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS; that they may be called TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE PLANTING OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY BE GLORIFIED.

Pro. 10:30—the RIGHTEOUS will NEVER BE REMOVED, but the wicked will NOT inhabit the earth. Pro. 10:2—Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but RIGHTEOUSNESS delivers from DEATH. Pro.11:5--The RIGHTEOUSNESS of the BLAMELESS will direct HIS WAY ARIGHT, but the wicked will fall by his own wickedness, (6) The RIGHTEOUSNESS of THE UPRIGHT will DELIVER THEM, but the UNFAITHFUL will be taken by their own lust. Pro.2:21—For the UPRIGHT will DWELL in THE LAND, and the BLAMELESS will REMAIN IN IT; (22) But the wicked will be cut off from the earth, and the UNFAITHFUL will be UPROOTED from it. Ps.140:13—Surely RIGHTEOUSNESS shall give thanks to Your name; THE UPRIGHT shall dwell in YOUR PRESENCE.

Pro. 8:17—I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently will find me. (18) Riches and honor are with me, ENDURING RICHES and RIGHTEOUSNESS. (19) My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold, and my revenue than choice silver. (20) I TRAVERSE the WAY of RIGHTEOUSNESS, in the midst of the paths of JUSTICE, (21) That I may cause those who love me to INHERIT WEALTH, that I MAY FILL THEIR TREASURIES. (22) THE LORD POSSESSED ME at THE BEGINNING of HIS WAY, before THE WORKS OF OLD. (23) I HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED FROM EVERLASTING, FROM THE BEGINNING, before there was EVER AN EARTH. (24) When there was no depths I was brought forth, when there were no fountains abounding with water. (29) When He assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters would not transgress His command, when He marked out THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH, (3) then I was BESIDE HIM, AS A MASTER CRAFTSMAN; and I WAS DAILY HIS DELIGHT, rejoicing always before Him, (31) REJOICING IN HIS INHABITED WORLD, and MY DELIGHT WAS WITH THE SONS OF MEN. (35) For whoever FINDS ME FINDS LIFE and OBTAINS FAVOR from the LORD.

Is. 28:16—Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I LAY IN ZION a stone for A FOUNDATION, a TRIED STONE, a PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE, a SURE FOUNDATION; 1 Peter 2:6—Therefore it is also contained in Scripture, “Behold, I LAY IN ZION a CHIEF CORNERSTONE, ELECT, PRECIOUS, and he who believes on HIM, will by no means be put to shame. Is. 51:7—Listen to Me, you who know RIGHTEOUSNESS, you people in whose heart is My law: do not fear the reproach of men, nor be afraid of their revilings. (8) For the moth will eat them like wool; BUT MY RIGHTEOUSNSS will be FOREVER and MY SALVATION from GENERATION to GENERATION. Is. 14:32—What will one then answer the MESSENGERS of THE NATION? That the Lord has FOUNDED ZION, and THE POOR of HIS PEOPLE take REFUGE in it. Pro. 16:14-As MESSENGERS of DEATH is the Kings WRATH, but A WISE MAN will APPEASE IT. (15) In THE LIGHT of the King’s FACE is LIFE, and HIS FAVOR is LIKE A CLOUD OF THE LATTER RAIN. Is. 45:8—RAIN down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down RIGHTEOUSNESS; let the earth open, LET THEM BRING FORTH SALVATION, and let RIGHTEOUSNESS spring up together. I, the Lord have created it.

Is. 49:6—Indeed He says, ‘It is too small a thing that You should be My servant to raise up the tribes of JACOB, and to restore the preserved ones of ISRAEL; I will also give YOU as A LIGHT to THE GENTILES, that YOU should be MY SALVATION to THE ENDS OF THE EARTH. (7) Thus says the Lord, the Redeemer of ISRAEL, their HOLY ONE, to Him whom man despises, to Him whom the nation abhors, to the Servant of rulers; Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the Lord who is FAITHFUL, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL; (Is. 30:8—Now go, write it on a scroll, that it may be FOR A TIME TO COME, forever and ever; (9) that this is a REBELLIOUS people, lying children, children who will NOT HEAR the LAW of THE LORD; (10) who say to the seers, “Do not see,” and to THE PROPHETS, “Do not prophesy to us RIGHT THINGS; speak to us SMOOTH THINGS, prophesy deceits. (11) Get out of the way, turn aside from the path, CAUSE THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL TO CEASE FROM BEFORE US.) (Pro. 9:10—The FEAR of the Lord is THE BEGINNING of WISDOM, and THE KNOWLEDGE of THE HOLY ONE is UNDERSTANDING.) (Pro. 19:23—The FEAR of the Lord leads to LIFE, and he who has it will abide in SATISFACTION; He will not be visited with evil.) (Pro.15:33—The FEAR of the Lord is the instruction of WISDOM and before HONOR is HUMILITY.)

Returning to Is. 49:7—THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL and HE HAS CHOSEN YOU. (8) Thus says the Lord: In an acceptable time I have heard You, and in the day of salvation I have helped you; I will preserve YOU and GIVE YOU as A COVENANT to the people, TO RESTORE THE EARTH, to cause them to INHERIT the desolate heritages; (9) That you may say to those who are in DARKNESS, ‘Show yourselves.

Is.62:1-For ZION’S sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, UNTIL HER RIGHTEOUSNESS goes forth as BRIGHTNESS, and HER SALVATION as a LAMP that BURNS. (2) The GENTILES shall see your RIGHTEOUSNESS, and all kings your glory. (6) I have set watchmen on your walls, O JERUSALEM, who shall never hold their peace day or night. YOU WHO MAKE MENTION of THE LORD, do NOT KEEP SILENT, (7) AND GIVE HIM NO REST TILL HE ESTABLISHES AND TILL HE MAKES JERUSALEM A PRAISE IN THE EARTH. (11) Indeed the Lord has proclaimed TO THE END OF THE WORLD: “Say to the daughter of ZION, ‘Surely your salvation is coming; Behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him. (12) And they shall call them THE HOLY PEOPLE, the REDEEMED of THE LORD; and you shall be called SOUGHT OUT, A CITY NOT FORSAKEN. Matt. 5:14—You are THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. A CITY THAT IS SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN. (15) Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives LIGHT to all who are in the house. (16) Let YOUR LIGHT so shine before men, that they may see your GOOD WORKS and GLORIFY your FATHER IN HEAVEN. 2 Chron. 6:5—Since the day that I brought MY PEOPLE out of the land of Egypt, I have chosen no CITY from any tribe of Israel in which to build a house, that MY NAME might be there, nor did I choose any man to be ruler over MY PEOPLE ISRAEL: (6) But I HAVE CHOSEN JERUSALEM, THAT MY NAME MAY BE THERE; and I HAVE CHOSEN DAVID to be OVER MY PEOPLE ISRAEL. Luke 1:54—He has helped His servant ISRAEL, in REMEMBRANCE of HIS MERCY, (55) As He spoke to OUR FATHERS, to ABRAHAM and to his seed forever.

Is. 30:18—Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be GRACIOUS to you; and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have MERCY on you. For the Lord is a God of JUSTICE; blessed are all those who wait for Him. (19) For the people shall DWELL IN ZION at JERUSALEM. Zech.2:10—Sing and rejoice, O daughter of ZION! For behold, I AM COMING and I WILL DWELL IN YOUR MIDST, says the Lord. (11) MANY NATIONS shall be JOINED to the LORD in that DAY, and they shall become MY PEOPLE. And I will DWELL IN YOUR MIDST. Then you will KNOW that the Lord of hosts has SENT me to you. (12) and the Lord will take possession of JUDAH AS HIS INHERITANCE in the HOLY LAND, and will AGAIN CHOOSE JERUSALEM.

Ps. 78:68—But CHOSE the tribe of JUDAH, MOUNT ZION which He loved. (69) and HE BUILT HIS SANCTUARY like the heights, LIKE THE EARTH WHICH HE HAS ESTABLISHED FOREVER. (70) He also CHOSE DAVID His servant, and took Him from the sheepfolds; (we are the sheep of His pasture) (71) From following the ewes that had young He brought him, to shepherd JACOB HIS PEOPLE, and ISRAEL HIS INHERITANCE. Heb.12:22—But you have come to MOUNT ZION and to THE CITY of THE LIVING GOD, THE HEAVENLY JERUSALEM, to an innumerable company of angels. (23) to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are REGISTERED in HEAVEN, to GOD THE JUDGE OF ALL, to the spirits of just men made perfect, (24) and TO JESUS THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW COVENANT, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. (Abel sacrificed a lamb, Christ was the Lamb that was sacrificed.) Ps. 87:5—And of ZION it will be said, THIS ONE and THAT ONE were BORN IN HER; and THE MOST HIGH HIMSELF SHALL ESTABLISH HER. (6) the LORD WILL RECORD when HE REGISTERS THE PEOPLES; THIS ONE WAS BORN THERE.

Ps.2:6—Yet I have set My King on my holy hill of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree the Lord has said to Me You are My Son today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) Ask of me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance and the ends of the earth for YOUR POSSESSION. Matt.17:10—And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that ELIJAH MUST COME FIRST? (11) Then Jesus answered and said to them, ELIJAH TRULY IS COMING FIRST and will RESTORE ALL THINGS. Mal.4:4—Remember the Law of MOSES, My servant, which I COMMANDED HIM in HOREB for ALL ISRAEL, with the statutes and judgments. (5) Behold, I WILL SEND YOU ELIJAH the prophet BEFORE THE COMING OF THE GREAT AND DREADFUL DAY OF THE LORD. (6) And he will TURN the hearts of THE FATHERS to THE CHILDREN, and the hearts of THE CHILDREN to their FATHERS, lest I come, and strike the earth with a CURSE. Ps. 37:22—For those who are BLESSED by Him SHALL INHERIT the EARTH, but those who are CURSED by HIM shall be CUT OFF. (29) THE RIGHTEOUS shall INHERIT the LAND, and dwell in it forever. (34) WAIT on the Lord, and keep HIS WAY, and He shall exalt you to INHERIT THE LAND.

Ps. 25:4—Show me YOUR WAYS, O Lord; TEACH me YOUR PATHS. (5) Lead me in YOUR TRUTH and TEACH ME. For you are the God of MY SALVATION. On YOU I WAIT ALL THE DAY. (8) Good and UPRIGHT is THE LORD; therefore He TEACHES sinners in THE WAY, (9) The HUMBLE He guides in justice, and the humble HE TEACHES HIS WAY. (10) All THE PATHS of the LORD are MERCY and TRUTH, to such as keep HIS COVENANT and HIS TESTIMONIES, (12) Who is the man that FEARS the LORD? HIM SHALL HE TEACH IN THE WAY THAT HE CHOOSES, (13) He himself shall dwell in prosperity, and HIS DESCENDANTS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.

Eph.3:1—For THIS REASON I, Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you GENTILES—(2) If indeed you have heard of the DISPENSATION of THE GRACE of GOD which was given to me for you, (3) how that BY REVELATION He made KNOWN TO ME THE MYSTERY (4) by which when you read, may UNDERSTAND my KNOWLEDGE in the MYSTERY of CHRIST, (5) which in OTHER AGES was NOT made KNOWN to the sons of men, as it has NOW been REVEALED by THE SPIRT to His holy apostles and prophets: (6) that THE GENTILES should be fellow heirs of the same body, and PARTAKERS of HIS PROMISE through THE GOSPEL. (Rom. 4:13—For THE PROMISE that he would be HEIR OF THE WORLD was NOT to ABRAHAM or to HIS SEED through the LAW, but through the RIGHTEOUSNESS of FAITH. Gal. 3:29—And if you are CHRIST’S then you are ABRAHAM’S SEED, and HEIRS according to THE PROMISE.

Returning to Eph. 3:7—Of which I became a minister according to THE GIFT OF THE GRACE of GOD given to me by the effective working of HIS POWER. (8) To me, who am less than the least of the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the GENTILES the UNSEARCHABLE RICHES OF CHRIST, (9) and to make all people see WHAT IS THE FELLOWSHIP of the MYSTERY, which from THE BEGINNING OF THE AGES HAS BEEN HIDDEN IN GOD who created ALL things through Jesus Christ: (10) to the INTENT that NOW the MANIFOLD WISDOM of GOD might be MADE KNOWN BY THE CHURCH to THE PRINCIPALITES and POWERS IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES, Eph. 6:12—For we do not wrestle against FLESH and BLOOD, but against PRINCIPALITES, against POWERS, against the rulers of THE DARKNESS of THIS AGE, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.) Returning to Eph. 3:11--according to THE ETERNAL PURPOSE which He accomplished in JESUS CHRIST our LORD.

Col. 1:26—THE MYSTERY which has BEEN HIDDEN from AGES and from GENERATIONS, but NOW has been REVEALED to His saints. (27) To them God willed to make known what are the riches of THE GLORY of this MYSTERY among THE GENTILES: WHICH IS CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY. 2 Corin. 13:5—EXAMINE your selves as to whether you are in THE FAITH. PROVE YOURSELVES. Do you not KNOW yourselves, that JESUS CHRIST IS IN YOU?—UNLESS INDEED YOU ARE DISQUALIFIED. 1 John 4:13—By THIS we KNOW that we ABIDE in HIM and HE in US, because HE HAS GIVEN US OF HIS SPIRIT. (14) And we have seen (In the word) and testify THAT THE FATHER HAS SENT THE SON as SAVIOR of THE WORLD. (15) Whoever confesses that JESUS is THE SON of GOD, GOD ABIDES IN HIM, and HE IN GOD. (16) And we have KNOWN and BELIEVED the LOVE that GOD HAS FOR US. GOD IS LOVE, and HE WHO ABIDES IN LOVE ABIDES IN GOD and GOD IN HIM. 1 John 4:7—Beloved, let us LOVE one another, for LOVE is of GOD; and everyone who LOVES is BORN of GOD and KNOWS GOD. (8) He who does NOT LOVE does NOT know GOD, for GOD is LOVE. (9) In THIS the LOVE of GOD was MANIFESTED TOWARD US, that GOD HAS SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON INTO THE WORLD, THAT WE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH HIM.

2 Corin. 5:17—Therefore, if ANYONE is IN CHRIST, he is a NEW CREATION; old things have passed away; behold, ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW. (18) Now ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD, who has RECONCILED US TO HIMSELF through JESUS CHRIST, and has given to us THE MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION, (19) that is, that GOD WAS IN CHRIST RECONCILING THE WORLD TO HIMSELF, NOT IMPUTING THEIR TRESSPASSES TO THEM, and HAS COMMITTED TO US THE WORD OF RECONCILIATION. (20) Therefore we are AMBASSADORS for CHRIST, as though GOD WERE PLEADING THROUGH US: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, BE RECONCILED to GOD. (21) For He made Him who KNEW NO SIN to BE SIN for US, that WE MIGHT BECOME THE RIGHTESOUSNESS of GOD IN HIM. Chapter 6:1—We then, as workers together with Him also PLEAD with YOU not to receive THE GRACE OF GOD IN VAIN. (2) For He says: “IN AN ACCEPTABLE TIME I HAVE HEARD YOU, and IN THE DAY OF SALVATION I HAVE HELPED YOU. Behold, NOW is the ACCEPTED TIME; behold, NOW is THE DAY OF SALVATION.

Is. 49:7—Thus says the Lord, the Redeemer of ISRAEL their HOLY ONE,--THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL; and HE HAS CHOSEN YOU. (8) Thus says the Lord: “In AN ACCEPTABLE TIME I HAVE HEARD YOU, AND IN THE DAY OF SALVATION I HAVE HELPED YOU; I will preserve YOU and GIVE YOU AS A COVENANT to the people, TO RESTORE THE EARTH, to cause them to inherit the desolate heritages; (9) That You may say to the prisoners, ‘Go forth, to those who are in DARKNESS, ‘Show yourselves. Is. 42:6—I, the Lord have called you in RIGHTEOUSNESS, and will HOLD YOUR HAND; I will KEEP YOU and GIVE YOU AS A COVENANT to the people, as A LIGHT to THE GENTILES, (7) to OPEN BLIND EYES, TO BRING OUT PRISONERS FROM THE PRISON, THOSE WHO SIT IN DARKNESS from THE PRISON HOUSE.

John 17:17:14—I have GIVEN THEM YOUR WORD; and the WORLD HAS HATED THEM because THEY ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, just as I AM NOT OF THE WORLD. (15) I DO NOT PRAY THAT YOU SHOULD TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, but that you should KEEP THEM FROM THE EVIL ONE. (16) They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. (17) SANCTIFY THEM BY YOUR TRUTH. YOUR WORD IS TRUTH. (18) As You SENT Me into the world, I ALSO HAVE SENT THEM INTO THE WORLD; (19) And for their sakes I SANCTIFY MYSELF, that they also MAY BE SANCTIFIED BY THE TRUTH. (20) I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word. (23) I in them and YOU IN ME; that they may be made PERFECT in ONE, and that THE WORLD MAY KNOW that YOU HAVE SENT ME, and have LOVED THEM AS YOU HAVE LOVED ME.

John 17:1—Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: Father the hour has come. GLORIFY YOUR SON, that YOUR SON also may GLORIFY YOU. Heb. 5:5—So also CHRIST DID NOT GLORIFY HIMSELF to BECOME HIGH PRIEST, but it was HE who SAID TO HIM: YOU ARE MY SON, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. Returning to John 17:2—As YOU have GIVEN HIM AUTHORITY OVER ALL FLESH, that He should give eternal life to AS MANY AS YOU HAVE GIVEN HIM. (3) And THIS is eternal life, that THEY MAY KNOW YOU, the ONLY TRUE GOD, and JESUS CHRIST WHOM YOU HAVE SENT. (5) And NOW, O Father, GLORIFY ME together with YOURSELF, with THE GLORY which I HAD BEFORE THE WORLD WAS.

John 1:14—And THE WORD became flesh and dwelt among us, and we BEHELD HIS GLORY, the GLORY as of THE ONLY BEGOTTEN of THE FATHER, full of GRACE and TRUTH. Ps. 2:6—Yet I have set MY King on my holy hill of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, YOU ARE MY SON, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) Ask of Me, and I WILL GIVE YOU THE NATIONS for YOUR INHERITANCE and THE ENDS OF THE EART FOR YOUR POSSESSION.

Matt. 28:18—Then Jesus came and spoke to them saying, “ALL AUTHORITY HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH. (19) Go therefore and make disciples of ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of THE FATHER, and of THE SON and of the HOLY SPIRIT. (20) Teaching them to observe ALL THINGS that I have commanded you; and LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD. (KJV)

Is. 45:22—Look to Me, and be SAVED, ALL YOU ENDS OF THE EARTH! For I am God and there is NO other.

Ps. 22:27—ALL THE ENDS OF THE WORLD SHALL REMEMBER and TURN TO THE LORD, and ALL THE FAMILIES of THE NATIONS shall WORSHIP BEFORE YOU. (28) For THE KINGDOM IS THE LORD’S, and HE RULES OVER THE NATIONS.

Wow,Sister Sharon what a Powerful compelation of Bible Verses. Some of my favorites you have chosen!!! Great Spiritual food for the soul!!! What a labour of Love from your heart to The Body of Christ to prepare such a Great Bible Study!!! Powerful Scripture verses proclaiming God's promises to His Church and to the Jewish Nation!!! Yes,Blessed is he who calls the God of Jacob His Lord!!! With Much Love in Christ Jesus, Dee "Numbers 6:24,25,26"
David&Dee Jobes 04 Nov 2006
"24For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 28As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes. 29For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 30For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: 31Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. 32For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. 33O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? 35Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen." Great promises to the Body of Christ and to the Nation Israel Romans 11:24-36 KJV

Dear Sharon... So many verses speak to me in very special ways. Yes, if God is our foundation and cornerstone, our "homes" (our lives, our souls) will be strong and we will be able to withstand the storms of life without crumbling. We WILL be able to shine our lights so all can see! With God as our foundation, we will have the strength to reach out and make disciples of other dear souls - we will be able to share God's LOVE and TRUTH, for He will provide all that we need and make us secure in our sharing. We will have a firm basis for establishing communities of faith because God will be at the core of our very being. Thank you for another glorious study, one that highlights the Scriptures that will strengthen Christian hearts and allow God to lead them according to HIS purposes. God bless you, dear and precious friend! Love, Peggy

His Word will not return void. It will accomplish all that He has planned. Amen
Dennis Carey 01 Nov 2006
Is. 30:18—"Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be GRACIOUS to you; and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have MERCY on you." GRACE AND MERCY, God's story to us, from beginning to end. How fabulous God has been to us! Praise the Lord for His goodness. The Scriptures soundly speak, and they have spoken again through your pen. Thank you, Sharon, for sharing and encouraging us in the Scriptures!
